Holiday anxiety – it’s a thing. It shouldn’t be, because what could be sweeter than that hard won getaway? you’ve worked hard for it, you know you *need* it. It means shopping opps galore, and before you know it, you are there..
But *where* ? Where to go this year? That place looks nice but you don’t know anyone else who’s been.. Should you rent a villa from someone you don’t know? What if it looks nothing like the brochure and it’s too late? *gah*…
Okay, that might just be me, but the unknown factors are exactly what send me booking the same old same old or nothing without a triple checked recommendation from close friends.
So I’m excited to know that Stay One Degree has entered the luxury home rentals market scene with a truly unique social networking concept that is mutually beneficial to both homeowner and guest to be able to rent beautiful properties via its community of like-minded people.
The concept founders shared my anxiety it seems, as they were seeking a way to avoid spending their holidays in unremarkable, unexciting properties, and focuses on a ‘circle of trust’ ideal that gives homeowners total control over who stays in their home. This new approach to home rentals provides total peace of mind for both homeowners and guests alike.
This is how it works – Each and every home is hand-picked by the Stay One Degree team who are looking for the very finest properties that stand out above the rest due to their beautiful interiors, homely feel and premium locations. Members, the homeowners and guests connect via a trusted network that grants them the ability to rent a home directly to and from the people that they trust all over the world.
Homeowners can decide whether they want to rent their home only to a friend, a friend of a friend or a degree of separation beyond that, giving them the power to manage and feel comfortable with who stays in their property. Likewise, guests can be confident that property they are renting has undergone rigorous checks to ensure it meets the Stay One Degree criteria.
Every single one of the Stay One Degree homes are hand-picked and vetted by adedicated team allowing the to offer a first-class collection of the most fabulous homes across over 35 countries.
Because members don’t want secondhand information about a destination or home, the company has also established a direct line of communication from homeowner to guest that allows the sharing of local knowledge, information and top tips resulting in a superior experience for all involved.
Stay One Degree was founded this year by two friends who were tired of renting uninspiring mundane holiday houses from total strangers, whilst people in their network let their beautiful homes lie empty, Stay One Degree provides an ideal forum for conversations to take place where local knowledge, passions, recommendations and insider tips can be shared.
